The IGS UK is the UK chapter of the International Geosynthetic Society.
The aims of the IGS UK chapter are to collect and distribute knowledge about geosynthetics & their applications by facilitating conferences, symposiums, evening presentations & research in order to promote the advancement of the state of the art of geosynthetics & to improve the communication and understanding of geosynthetic products between designers, manufacturers and users of the products.
Evening Lecture: Sealing Systems for Containment
Speaker: Chris Quirk, Naue.
JOINT MEETING with Yorkshire Geotechnical Group
Tuesday 30th April 2019
The Adelphi, 1-3 Hunsley Road, Leeds, LS10 1JQ
Refreshments from 6.00pm for 6.30pm start
The presentation will look at the continued development of geosynthetics for use in containment applications with reference to current Environment Agency Guidance. It will also look at how new developments can allow this Guidance to be relaxed, once fully understood. The presentation will also look at how Eurocode 7 has an impact on the use of geosynthetics in containment to ensure real data, not assumed figures need to be used. It will also look at the pitfalls of using the wrong type of test. The presentation will also look at case studies to see how we can avoid mistakes and ensure the use of “state of the art material” to meet current regulatory requirements.
